Description

The Israeli military meets its match in a determined 15-year-old girl, in Dror Shaul’s hilarious satire on volatile Iran-Israel relations. Nofar works in a falafel truck with her widowed mother near the site of a secret Israeli nuclear program gearing up for war. However, a proverbial monkey wrench gets tossed into the gears of the military’s plans when the International Atomic Energy Agency shows up for an inspection with a handsome German inspector that Nofar thinks is just right for her mother. With clear nods to Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Stangelove, this fast-paced pro-peace comedy is just the right recipe for these troubled times.


Press

This exuberant, delightfully absurd comedy is Israeli helmer-writer Dror Shaul’s 'Dr. Strangelove.'" - Variety
